You’re so vain, you probably think this article is about you… if any of the celebrities who find themselves on this list were to see this article title they would probably assume their name would be on it, and there’s a good reason for that; they are a little too in love with themselves.
Don’t get us wrong, it’s extremely important to love yourself and have self-confidence, but there is a fine line between loving yourself and being obsessed with yourself, and it seems
there are a few celebrities who take things to the extreme. Some prove they are narcissists by posing in photos that suggest they live a lavish lifestyle, or sharing photos of themselves looking good. Social media and celebrities go hand-in-hand and they use these platforms to promote themselves, and more often than not this promotion is self-promotion. And what better way to do this than with many, many selfies?
And then there are those who are much worse because they deserve a spot on this list because of the terrible way they treat others, as well as their diva-like behavior. Below are 21 celebs who are completely obsessed with themselves, and it’s about time they had a wake-up call.
21 Paris Hilton Has Heart-Eyes For Herself
It’s no secret that Paris Hilton is more in love with herself than the average person is because when she’s not posing for selfies or photos in general, she’s looking in the mirror and proclaiming “that’s hot.”
It’s not just selfies that makes Hilton feature on this list, but also the fact that she is more than happy to flaunt her privilege and lavish lifestyle on social media. If you are among the 8.5 million people who follow her account then you probably enjoy seeing her phone selfies, or photos of her living it up on private jets and enjoying luxurious holidays.
And let’s not forget that she was once a reality star thanks to The Simple Life, which basically proved to everyone that she was a pampered princess and had no idea how to live, as the title suggests, a simple life.
20 Kylie Jenner Is The Queen Of Poses
Kylie Jenner may only be aged 20, but she’s definitely one of the vainest celebrities in this world and seems to be more than a little obsessed with her appearance. Over the years she’s taken countless selfies and she’s always up for posting Snapchats of herself looking cute (note to Kylie, Snapchat filters don’t make it OK to pose shamelessly in front of the camera).
If you’re going to judge just how vain someone is by the number of selfies they post on social media, then Kylie Jenner is definitely up there at the very top of the list, and it doesn’t take a genius to work this out. It does, however, require a calculator because there are so many selfies on her account that it’s hard to keep track.
19 Kim Kardashian West Even Has A Book Of Selfies
What list of vain celebrities would be complete without Kim Kardashian West? She’s undoubtedly one of the most beautiful women in the world and I actually have a lot of love for her because she’s a celeb who doesn’t care what the rest of the world thinks. And it takes a lot of confidence to feel that way.
But there is a line between confidence and overconfidence and it seems that Kardashian West is blurring that line because who the heck publishes a book of their selfies? In a way, you have to think wow, Kardashian West even found a way to make money from her selfies by compiling them into a coffee-table book called Selfish (you have to be a hardcore fan to want this in your home), but at the same time, it’s a bit extreme.
18 Mariah Carey Wants The World To Love Her As Much As She Loves Herself
Mariah Carey wants the world to believe that she takes bubble baths dripping in diamonds, and records music in bodycon dresses and full-on makeup, but she’s not fooling anyone. Over the years Carey has gotten a bit of a reputation for herself for being a diva and it seems to be a reputation which she embraces because she feeds into the glamorous appearance and lifestyle.
Then there is also the rumor that’s she’s insured her legs and vocal chords for a whopping $70 million. Wow. It seems she thinks she's a little bit better than everyone else (and maybe she is) but for modesty sake, she should probably tone down things a notch. Then again, I'm no Mariah Carey, so who am I to suggest she does anything!
17 Tyra Banks Is Not Beneath A Good Selfie
Tyra Banks is an accomplished model so obviously, she knows that she was born with good genes, and she appears to be a pretty nice woman. But you can be nice and vain at the same time, apparently, because Tyra Banks Instagram is filled with selfies. And I mean filled!
That’s not to say that most people haven’t taken a selfie or two in their lifetime, but Banks has found herself on lists that calculated how many selfies celebs post, which means other people have definitely taken notice of how she can take things to the extreme. Also, some fans have noticed how on America’s Next Top Model she always seems to somehow add some information about herself into the episode.
We get it, Tyra, you’re a beautiful and accomplished woman, but there’s nothing beautiful about vanity.
16 Miley Cyrus Wants To See Her Name In Lights
Miley Cyrus went through an odd phase when she was trying to ditch her Disney image for a much more adult appearance -- this was also a way to ensure that her name was constantly in the media -- but even when she was shocking the world with her antics and looks, she was still posting more selfies in one week than we have in a lifetime. Fast forward a few years, and Cyrus has become a little more glamorous, she also seems to like posing for photos in front of her name, you know, just in case we all forgot who she was.
A note to Cyrus, there is nothing particularly interesting about selfies, and considering the life you live there are probably better things you can share other than close-ups of your face.
15 I Wouldn’t Say Ariana Grande Is Obsessed With Herself, But It’s Close
Dear Ariana Grande, it’s time you got off your high horse and realized you’re no better than the rest of us.
If Ariana Grande could marry a mirror she probably would, at least that’s the way she makes it seem when she is constantly posting pictures of herself on social media, including selfies (she understands the beauty of the black-and-white filter). There’s no denying that Grande is a good looking girl, she also has a serious set of pipes on her, but much like Mariah Carey, she’s also got a bit of a reputation for allegedly being a diva — these allegations include a blog post from a father who was less-than-impressed by her disinterest in her fans, who had won a competition.
Can you be a diva without being arrogant, or these two things mutually inclusive?!
14 Self-Confidence Is Easy When You’re Demi Lovato... Right?
There was a time when Demi Lovato really struggled with her appearance and she has been vocal about her battle with eating disorders, now she’s all about self-love and body confidence. But is it possible she has taken that too far and has come across as vain? If you were to criticize her vanity and arrogance she’d probably jump down your throat and tell you that she’s just promoting self-love, but that’s become a little too easy to hide behind.
Although you have to give Lovato credit where credit is due, she does send out a positive message to young and impressionable teens, but there’s a fine line between loving yourself and being in love with yourself. We are all for women feeling beautiful and encouraging and uplifting each other, we struggle to see how selfies (and large amounts of them) help this cause.
13 Wonder How Many Times Khloé Kardashian Has Stared Into The Mirror?
Not every member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan is finding their way onto this list, just the ones who are particularly full of themselves, like miss Khloé Kardashian. And here’s why; she probably always stares into the mirror and asks who is the fairest in the land, especially now that she’s shed the extra pounds and started doing her makeup differently.
For years Khloé felt inferior to her sisters and was often thought of as the “the ugly Kardashian" sister (courtesy of Eminem). But now that she loves her appearance she’s certainly making up for lost time and is more than happy to share a selfie of her body and her face. She also has a show called Revenge Body, which basically helps contestants transform their lives and gives them a makeover to look better and be better. And no one who isn’t obsessed with physical appearance thinks to create a show like this.
12 Naomi Campbell Knows When She Looks Good
Let’s not kid anyone with this entry because Naomi Campbell is definitely obsessed with herself. Of course, she has a lot to be proud of because she’s achieved a heck of a lot in her life especially in the modeling and fashion world and you can’t help but be impressed by her. That said, she also has a reputation for being hard to work with and perhaps not the nicest person, especially when it comes to the way she treats her employees.
She has made headlines a few times for her treatment of her employees, including an altercation with her limo driver, as well as one with her housekeeper, and perhaps the most infamous of all the stories involved her assistant and a Blackberry. How full of yourself must you be to think it’s OK to treat people as though they are inferior?
11 Kim Zolciak Thinks Snapchat Makes Her Look Adorable
Kim Zolciak-Biermann was once part of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast, but she’s since become a reality TV star on her very own show, Don’t Be Tardy. As for why she belongs on this list, well, that’s simple. You don’t become a reality star and share every aspect of your life with the world if you’re not at least a little obsessed with yourself.
You do this because you clearly think that you have something interesting and unique to offer viewers. There’s that, and then there is the fact that she has hundreds of photos on social media, more than half of which are selfies, and often in some pretty sultry poses. Is she trying to cling to her youth because she married Kroy Biermann, a man who is seven years her junior? Or is she just trying to keep her name in the press? Well, you can decide on this one.
10 Girls Don’t Just Run The World, Beyoncé Does
Beyoncé deserves her success; she's supremely talented and hard-working, and it’s virtually impossible not to admire her. But it seems we aren't the only ones who admire her because Beyoncé also admires Beyoncé.
She’s everywhere and the world just can’t seem to get enough of Beyoncé. She's also always getting her photo taken, but according to rumors, Bey is very particular about who takes photos of her. According to reports, she banned professional photographers during her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour and instead hired her own photographer.
The reason? It’s rumored that this decision came about because she wanted to avoid a repeat of unflattering images, like the ones that were taken of her during her Super Bowl Halftime performance. How vain must you be to have to control every single photo opportunity? I mean, we all have ugly pictures days!
9 Lady Gaga Often Asks Who Is The Fairest Of Them All
It’s hard to think of Lady Gaga as vain, especially since back in the day she was a woman who wore really crazy and extremely unflattering outfits, including a meat dress. But if you head over to the mother monster’s Instagram account you will be surprised by just how many selfies she posts, and it seems Gaga loves nothing better than a close-up shot of her face.
Aside from loving a good selfie, Gaga also thinks a lot of herself and previously declared in an interview with Vogue, “I consider myself to have one of the greatest voices in the industry. I consider myself to be one of the greatest songwriters.” Um, yes, you're obviously extremely talented, Gaga, but you also crossed a line with this statement.
8 Hailey Baldwin Can’t Get Enough Of Herself
Hailey Baldwin is a young, up-and-coming model, and she’s a good looking girl, but she also comes across as a narcissist and uses her Instagram account as a way of racking up followers. In addition to the hundreds of selfies that are posted on Baldwin’s account, there are also photos which show her on private boats and posing in picturesque locations and this is what's annoying.
It seems as though she wants us to believe her lifestyle is better than others, and while that may be true in some ways, this is also the marks of a true narcissist. According to Guest of a Guest, a 2016 study published in the journal Computers in Human Behavior revealed that narcissists posted pictures which made their lives look to be a certain way. For example, the locations and the expensive objects Baldwin uses in her photos as props, to give off the appearance that she’s wealthy and living the dream. Um, OK then!
7 Sofia Richie Knows All The Best Angles
Sofia Richie is a model so she poses for photos for a living, and part of her job is to promote herself and her image, which she does via social media platforms like Instagram. But it’s not just professional shots that you’re going to find on her page, you also don’t need to scroll down too far before you see her staring into the camera with big, dreamy eyes, or posing for a selfie because she thought her hair and makeup was on fleek that day.
That aside, the strangest things about Sofia Richie is surprisingly not that she’s always camera ready, and you’ll struggle to find an ugly picture of her anywhere, but her relationship status. For those who don’t know, she’s dating Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy and a man who is 15 years her senior, who also happens to be a frequent star on her Instagram account.
6 Madonna Really Is The Material Girl
We all know what a prima donna (which even sounds like Madonna) is, and the term is quite fitting when it comes to the singer, too. Over the years there have been more than a handful of times fans and critics alike have had to roll their eyes at Madonna and her antics, which include her being incredibly late to a concert in Australia, which made it seem as though she didn’t care at all about her fans, the organizers, or anyone other than herself. We get it, things come up and people get stressed out and delayed, but this also shows an air of arrogance.
Her “Material Girl” track is probably a little closer to real-life than she would like to admit because it seems Madonna really is a woman who likes the finer things in life (and possibly also pocket mirrors).
5 Bella Hadid Has Perfected The 'I Look Bored But Beautiful' Look
There is not just one famous model from the Hadid family that has made her way onto everyone’s radar but two, Gigi and Bella Hadid. While both models are incredibly popular and use their social media accounts for as much business as they do for pleasure (such as selfies and other cute shots), we’ve decided to focus on Bella this time around.
The biggest reason is her poses. Take these pictures above as an example because you don’t perfect the “I look bored but at the same time beautiful” look without a lot of practice. It’s also the fact that she’s trying so darn hard to make it look as though she didn’t try at all with snaps, which is particularly annoying. I’m on to you, Bella Hadid!
4 Nicki Minaj Has More Than Buns, Hun
It pains me a little to put Nicki Minaj’s name on this list because I like her, I like her a lot, but no one likes Minaj more than she likes herself.
When she’s not looking at herself in the mirror and posting photos on social media which show her looking lit, then she’s having to deal with allegations that she’s apparently not the easiest person to work with. According to Mickey Boardman, the editorial director of Paper magazine, working with Minaj is anything but fun. During an interview with Buzzfeed, he recalled some of the most difficult celebs he’s ever worked with, and that list included Minaj.
He said, “Nicki Minaj was not fun. The Nicki thing turned out fine in the end, but it was two weeks of hideous torture and [her] walking off shoots.” Yikes!
3 Cara Delevingne Doesn’t Just Like Posing For Professional Photos
If you stick your tongue out and pull weird faces and then post these photos on social media does this make you any less vain than if you were posting pouty faces? It seems there’s some confusion about this because people love Cara Delevingne for how fun and quirky she is. And she is, but they also don’t realize that taking these photos also means she’s pretty darn vain.
No one shares photos of themselves online if they don’t think that they’re going to get a positive reaction from them. And although Delevingne may have a different approach to social media than a few reality stars out there (let’s not name and shame) and this makes her more likable, you still can’t forget that she has a bit of narcissistic qualities about her.
2 Rihanna Never Takes A Bad Snap, Ever
Rihanna is a celeb who doesn’t care what others think of her. She has a lot of opinions and is not afraid to shade people, whoever they may be, but you also have to love Rihanna for her attitude because she refuses to fit into any mold. And she doesn't do what's expected of her. Instead, she is unashamed, she’s also a bit of a narcissist.
I mean, how many people do you know who would wear a T-shirt with their own face on it? Probably not many, and if any other celeb did this we would be laughing at them and rolling our eyes because who does that? But Rihanna gets a free pass with things like this because in many ways her behavior is empowering, even so, she doesn’t get a free pass when it comes to her spot on this list.
1 Paris Jackson Has Really Started To Enjoy The Limelight
There was a time when Paris Jackson (the daughter of the late Michael Jackson) was incredibly uncomfortable by the public’s attention, but now it seems she’s actively looking for it. And not just that, she also seems to want public adoration which may be why she’s forever posting selfies on Instagram.
Jackson is an attractive girl, and she seems to have realized that this is something she can tap into because she has reportedly signed to IMG models (the same company who represents Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, and Karlie Kloss) to become the next big thing. She is reportedly also interested in becoming an actress and has appeared in a scene in action-comedy, Gringo. This probably means we're going to be seeing a lot more of her in the future.
